Today the 9th Circuit Court ruled that anti-gay marriage amendments were unconstitutional. This means that marriage equality is coming to the 9th Circuit- Nevada, Idaho, Arizona, and Montana.

A quote from the ruling: "He also states, in conclusory fashion, that allowing same-sex marriage will lead opposite-sex couples to abuse alcohol and drugs, engage in extramarital affairs, take on demanding work schedules, and participate in time-consuming hobbies. We seriously doubt that allowing committed same-sex couples to settle down in legally recognized marriages will drive opposite-sex couples to sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll."

Yesterday the Supreme Court decided to let the Circuit Court ruling in three other cases stand, bringing same sex marriage to 11 other states. By the end of the year, at least 35 states will have marriage equality.

If you go through my blog you can see the despair I felt back in 2008 when the anti-gay marriage amendment passed. The Mormon Church and the Catholic Church pushed hard for passage, collecting money, putting on adverts on the radio, television, billboards, and in the newspaper suggesting that gays were coming after your children. Bishop Gerald Kicanas of Tucson wrote an editorial claiming that gay people were "disordered." Local churches posted big signs.

And then there was Cathi Herrod of the Center for Arizona Policy. This bitch has made it her life's work to promote discrimination and hatred towards LGBT people. Back when the City of Tucson was planning on offering joint library cards to gay and lesbian couples she attempted to stop that. Well the evil woman gets to see same sex marriage legalized in Arizona and there is nothing, absolutely nothing she can do about it. If/when I get married, she and Kicanas are going to get an invitation from me.

Oh, and I will be registering at Tractor Supply.
